    What's Your Setup for the Colorado Winter Hang?

    So the Colorado Winter Hang is coming up in late February...temps are expected to be well below negative cold. What gear will keep you warm?

    Of course everything can change six times between now and then, but my current plan is:

    Hammock - haven't decided - maybe a DIY Blackbird with no bug net
    Top - MWUQ4 and JRB hood - 30 oz
    Bottom - Winter Yeti with Reflective Liner - 23 oz
    - torso-sized CCF pad - a few oz depending on how big I bring
    Tarp - JRB 11' x 10' Cat Tarp

    And maybe the Hammock Sock. I'm planning a new model if I have time to make it. Would be nice if I had a matching DIY Blackbird and Hammock Sock.

    And then I'll have the gear I'm wearing...coat, ThermaWrap pants (and I'll probably have some fleece pants on as well), etc.

    So what are you bringing?

    My setup will be:

    Probably my Blackbird double 1.7
    Warbonnet SuperFly
    Winter Yeti on bottom
    Either my JRB Rocky Mtn. Sniveler or Winter DIY on top
    I suspect I'll also bring the topcover made by fin

    Clothing will be base layers, wool socks, a balaclava, and probably some light gloves.

    Genuine Draft's gear list is still in TBD status. We'll get it sorted out within a week, but safe to say there will be many pounds of down involved.
    Trust nobody!

    I might have to add everything up and see if it's lighter to put my DownHammock inside the PeaPod with a No Sniveler.
